Increasing freshwater availability concerns due to rising pollution to enhance uptake for effective treatment and discharge

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / February 18, 2021 / Fact.MR's global sodium sulphite market report expects a positive growth trajectory for FY 2021-22 as compared to 2020, as key end-use industries navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic induced headwinds. Long-term expansion prospects appear sluggish to moderate, with a projected CAGR of around 2% through 2031.

The market received a nudge from the paper & pulp processing industry, accounting for more than a third of the revenue share, attributed to its utilization as a dissolving agent in the semi-chemical and acid sulphate pulping process. Further developments are anticipated across the water treatment segment, with Fact.MR's estimates forecasting a 20% revenue share during the historical period.

Over the years, wastewater management has occupied the center stage, as demands across key industries increase. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that industrial water usage constitutes 22% of global water usage. Also, an estimated 3 billion to 10 billion gallons of untreated waste is discharged into water bodies. Hence, availability of potable water is becoming restricted. To offset this, industries are incorporating wastewater treatment operations, which is likely to aggrandize sodium sulphite demand in forthcoming years.

"Increasing government regulations to limit sodium sulphite uptake in the food & beverages segment due to perceived detrimental impacts is likely to peg growth on a modest trajectory, sustained by heightening applications in paper processing, water purification and pharmaceutical manufacturing," says a Fact.MR analyst.
